Fall Colors at Fort Mountain State Park

We decided to drive up to Fort Mountain State Park today to see if the leaves had changed much. We had noticed that in the last couple days they were changing more here so we were hopeful the mountain was colorful. We sure were glad we went!

I'm going to post just some general shots of the trees to show y'all the different colors on the mountain. The first photo, the yellow leaves, are my husband's favorite kind. There were quite a few yellow trees up there. I like the yellow, well, I like all the colors, but the orange ones are my favorite. I love the ones that look almost on fire.

Here are a few more photos. I hope y'all enjoy them.

These remind me of Christmas because they are red and green. :)

You can see several colors in this photo. Reds, greens, yellows, oranges and golds.

One of my favorites. They are just so bright and happy.

Hope y'all are enjoying fall in your neck of the woods.

My comment seems to have disappeared. I had said that I felt I was in person looking at your pictures. When I was in the US I had just missed the season although I did get to see the maple trees change colours in Canada. And incidentally I have shared your post ion FB

Thank you very much for sharing. I forgot to mention it in the article, but I did NO editing at all on these photos. I know you'll like that. :) I'm sorry you missed fall while here. It is truly beautiful.

I know. That's why I mentioned it to you. :)

Fort Mountain is one of those not-too-far-away places I always think about going on a day trip, and yet never seem to get to. Love that area.

For the best red leaves track down Acer Japonicum (Japanese Maple) with the sun behind them...

It is a nice place. It's not far from us at all so we have been often.

Yeah, we don't have many reds around here. Not yet anyway.

They're certainly prettier than ours are here. We don't get too many reds, just varying shades of gold and yellow. Still, they are pretty.

We have more of the lighter colors as well. That's why I love seeing the oranges and reds.
